To find out what you love to do demands a great deal of intelligence;
because, if you are afraid of not being able to earn a livelihood,
or of not fitting into this rotten society,
then you will never find out.

But, if you are not frightened,
if you refuse to be pushed into the groove of tradition by your parents,
by your teachers,
by the superficial demands of society,
then there is a possibility of discovering what it is you really love to do.

So, to discover,there must be no fear of not surviving.

– Krishnamurti

St Patrick’s Day

Ireland was converted to Christianity by Patrick in 431. Legend has it that he drove the snakes out of Ireland and defeated the Druids.

St Patrick’s Prayer

I arise today
Through the strength of haven,
Light of sun.
Radiance of moon,
Splendor of fire,
Speed of lightening,
Swiftness of wind,
Depth of sea,
Stability of earth,
Firmness of rock
Through the creator of creation.

Plans for a retreat

Plans for a women’s retreat in country Victoria are underway.
Easter will see the labyrinths refurbished and renewed – more blisters! Hopefully I will be able to construct one of rocks as well – although I am contemplating doing a really big one- not just a simple 5 ring one like the other two. (a third labyrinth was lost when the septic system was put in)
Once details are sorted out regarding accommodation, then the first of the retreats will happen.

Working hard

Finished the Certificate IV in Workplace training and Assessment – which was a little disappointing as it was a little too disorganized for my liking. Allocated rooms were not available, most of the stuff was on line and difficult to access – but hey! a learning experience and shows what to do to keep clients happy.
I’ve now embarked on the Applied Diploma of Clinical Hypnotherapy and loving it! My clients for the student logs are co-operative and I have had three clients for weight loss – I need to lose weight as well!
The PolarityPlus clinic is going well with greater public awareness and more bookings coming in.
The main focus is on helping people to learn and retain information better, using whatever suits the client best.
I am using the techniques learnt from the Certificate of Hypnotherapy to relax clients.
If you are stressed, then the frontal cortex is too preoccupied with the stress to allow learning to take place effectively – a bit like too many applications being open on the computer, which slows everything down!
